The Hyman Fine Arts Center gallery after renovations

FMU’s Kassab Recital Hall — located in the Hyman Fine Arts Center — will become the Adele Kassab Recital Hall and Art Gallery. The combined space was recently renovated, providing and cleaner, more connected look to the space.

Both the old recital hall, and the new, broader arts area are, of course, nammed for Adele Kassab, and her late husband John, both of whom have been long-time supports of Francis Marion. The couple has contributed to a number of FMU facilities, and has provided scholarship dollars for years, including the Adele Kassab Music Scholarship, offered annually to students studying music.
